Get ready, 'cause we’re about to drop a little bit of background knowledge on you: The Yamazaki distillery, opened in 1923, was Japan's first commercial Whisky distillery. It’s owned by Suntory and located in Shimamoto, Osaka Prefecture, Japan.

Alright. Fast-forward to Jim Murray naming Yamazaki Sherry Cask 2013 best Whisky of the world. The hype machine went into full effect. Good thing Yamazaki had the stones to back it up. The hype continues to grow, making every new batch harder to get. And the Whisky, well… it just gets better.

As befits a Sherry-matured dram, this bottle is infused with intense, fruity aromas and an impressive deep copper hue. Pure poetry in a dram.

Yamazaki has the largest share of single malt Whisky in the Japanese market.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
It's not uncommon for Japanese Whisky to be aged in mizunara (Japanese oak) casks. Suntory conducted a research on how mizunara oak influences Whisky flavor and found out it adds coconut notes to it.
Japanese Whisky is connected both to Scotch and Bourbon. It’s a Scotch-style Spirit that’s matured in climates similar to Kentucky’s.
